Beautiful! We are getting more snow...you must be too!
I call these "Teasels", they make great pictures.
This type of thistle is called "Cabaret des oiseaux". Its leaves grow in pairs along the stem and forms a receptacle which retains rainwater for watering the goldfinches.
I just joined a group that is all about thistles! I will need your expertise to be sure I put my photos in the right folders
like cotton balls
